Fantastico! I loved every word. I have a similar story from my fourth grade year in New Jersey, during school integration years -- I was "beat up" on the playground --

Congrats on the publication!

YAYYY! And this is one of my favorites. I remember distinctly after I read this that I just kept thinking and thinking about your words and the images that they conjured in my mind. I felt like I was jumping rope with you in your neighborhood long afterwards. And that is how a good writer makes a reader feel.

Hi Maggie,
Congratulations! I remember reading a version of this before, and being impressed then, as well as now, by your style of writing, your honesty, and your humanistic perspective. It's great to see you published.

I ENJOYED that year in Mississippi essay!! Thank you so much! It was straight and true and real!
Those who publish are the ones Community Colleges want to teach - it isn't always about the credits. They want people who can reach people and encourage them to grow, who can speak from experience and point the way to a better future.
